. that serious yah is iraq. it's just the twin sister. it's a ba'athist regime ruling a multiethnic society. iraq had a sunni minority ruling a shiite majority with kurds and other minorities on the side. syria has a shiite minority ruling a sunni majority with kurds and other minorities. they are mirror images of each other. now, what happened in iraq was we pulled the pin. we remed e dictator at the top and that led to an explosion sand what american did in iraq was the geopolitical equivalent >> rose: we weren't prepared for what would happen after we removed the pin. >> but then we did the geopolitical equivalent of falling on a grenade. we absorbed the entire explosion. we iraqis most of all. i'm saying our presence there prevented it from becoming a regional conflagration. and we then presided over-- largely because of mistakes originally-- but in many cases it was probably inevitable a civil war as the parties contested the new balance of power. let them each test each other. they finally reached a point of exhaustion and balance. we then midwife add social contract between them and on the
in dealing with iraq and afghanistan? if you are not satisfied, what you think president obama should consider in a way of changes? >> i am not satisfied. as a libertarian, i seek a world at peace with other nations. i look to thomas jefferson's quotation for inspiration. peace, converse -- commerce, -- america should stop acting as the world's policeman. i do believe in a strong national defense, but the optimum board is defense, not offense. we do not have the money to continue the wars. our money could be more wisely spent here at home. >> todd akin. >> it is important to have a foreign policy to start with. you have to have some basic principles, the guidelines. that needs to an acute -- including iraq, afghanistan, a whole lot of other countries as well. the problem is we have not had that. what it seems like the vacillating policies we have almost punished our friends and helped our enemies. we decided to turn our backs on two of our allies, the czech republic and poland. we had plans to build missile defense. we gave that is a concession to russia. how much has russia helped us
sights to iraq just days after 9/11, i stood up and opposed this war, knowing that it would distract us from the real threats we face. when john mccain said we could just "muddle through" in afghanistan, i argued for more resources and more troops to finish the fight against the terrorists who actually attacked us on 9/11, and made clear that we must take out osama bin laden and his lieutenants if we have them in our sights. john mccain likes to say that he'll follow bin laden to the gates of hell - but he won't even go to the cave where he lives. [cheers and applause] and today, as my call for a time frame to remove our troops from iraq has been echoed by the iraqi government and even the bush administration, even after we learned that iraq has a $79 billion surplus while we're wallowing in deficits, john mccain stands alone in his stubborn refusal to end a misguided war. that's not the judgment we need. that won't keep america safe. we need a president who can face the threats of the future, not keep grasping at the ideas of the past. [cheers and applause] you don't defeat a terrorist
not persuaded that 20,000 additional troops in iraq is going to solve the sectarian violence. >> billions have been spent for us to trust the president on another tired and failed policy. >> as some point you have to knowledge the approach we are taking is not working and try a different approach. the president's attitude has been more of the same. >> we ended up, i think, misdirecting our resources. >> in afghanistan our situation has deteriorated and we had an attack on a u.s. embassy where nine servicemen were killed. >>neil: what do you think? >>guest: well, candidate obama, senator obama, he used hot rhetoric against the president. president bush was filled with resolve and he had the courage to do what he thought was right and he wasn't looking to gain favor at home. he was looking to do the right thing for the united states of america. he had thick skin. president bush was confident, quietly confident in his ability to make tough decisions. he had the courage to make tough decisions. he knew in would be flak. i don't think president obama should be as concerned as he demonstrated he was
, will explain what he did to move away from -- again we were on the precipice of great depression, the iraq war, i think the american people know that we have a tough economy, largely what the republican convention last week was, was hiding their own agenda, a bunch of platitudes and angry insults. people know that we have a tough economy. they want to know how we're going to move forward. we have energized near colorado, here, great volunteers, we're beginning to see great rental strigs. we think we'll be able to build the kind of excitement on the ground to win this election. particularly for the middle class voters in this country, who do you trust to make economic decisions with you at the core? and mitt romney is clearly going to make every decision through the prism of he believes, if people like him get a huge tax break, somehow that's going to trickle down to everyone else. >> another big economic decision that people will have to make is about medicare. medicare has been a winner for democrats. in his convention speech, paul ryan signaled to suggest that the republicans weren't going t
are failing in iraq. the iranian planes are flying over iraq to deliver arms to bashar al-assad and al qaeda is on the resurgence. in afghanistan we just saw the greatest single attack as far as money is concerned in our base where we lost some $200 million worth of aircraft. we have canceled training and operations with afghans because we don't trust them because of this killing by afghans of americans in uniform. by the way, this was a very, very professional attack they made on the base in afghanistan. in iran, the iranians do not think we are serious. we just criticize israel and tell israel they should not attack iran. in syria, 25,000 people have been massacred and the president of the united states doesn't even speak on their behalf. they believe that america is weak and we are withdrawing. that is what it is all about. >>neil: with the more violence the more the folks are inclined to say, to hell with him. i had ron paul on a couple of days ago and i mentioned to him, you thought it was a good idea to encourage the moderates throughout the middle east, particularly places like libya

opponent said it was tragic to end the war in iraq. he will not tell us how he will end the war in afghanistan. well, i have, and i will. [cheers] while my opponent will spend more money on military hardware and that our joint chiefs do not even want, i will use the money we are no longer spending on were to pay down debt and put more people back to work, rebuilding roads, bridges, and schools. after two wars, it is time to do some nation building right here at home. [cheers and applause] you can choose a future where we reduce our deficit, without sticking it to the middle class. independent experts say my plan would cut the deficit by $4 trillion. last summer i worked with republicans in congress to cut $1 billion of in spending. those of us to believe government can be a force for good should work harder than anybody to reform it so it is leaner, more efficient, and more responsive to the american people.

is well, and thriving in some places, including iraq, including in syria where there's more and more those kinds of people coming in, including other parts of the middle east. and it's just disgraceful that we would say that an attack such as this was the result of a demonstration. >> disgraceful is a strong word to be used. you've never shied away from that. how can you say you know? >> how can you say when there's an attack with mortars, with heavy weapons, indirect and direct -- anybody who understands warfare, anybody who has the fundamental understanding of warfare knows that that's not a spontaneous demonstration. that's now, norah. >> as you know libya -- what susan rice said on a number of shows over the weekend which you have criticized -- i read this morning. >> i was on after her. she said they had no evidence that it was not a spontaneous demonstration. how could you say that when mortars indirect, direct fire and heavy weapons are being used at this is as a result of a spontaneous demonstration? also incredible to blame it on a video. it's not the video. its the islamist using
to the ill conceived war in iraq and signed into law historic health care reform. a dream that was already decades overdue when i called for it at this convention 36 years ago. and he has done it all in the face of bitter, unyielding and in fact unprecedented partisan opposition. overseas, president obama has restored the reputation of the united states within the world community. dialogue and collaboration are once again possible with the return of a spirit of trust and goodwill to our foreign policy. of course, there remains much to do. in communities across america and in countries around the world, life is too hard for too many people. we see their struggles and our hearts go out to them. and in the coming years, our hands must continue to reach out to them. yet for all that remains to be done, at home and abroad, the evidence is overwhelming. president obama is a leader for america, as we have placed the onslaught of some of the most complicated, domestic and international challenges to confront any u.s. president in modern times. it's up to all of us to make sure that the american pe
brought osama bin laden to justice, who ended the war in iraq. >> that was the change we fought for. s that 'twas change president obama deliver. >> president obama saved the auto industry and saved a million jobs. >> i for one will not stand by and let him be bullied out of office and neither should you. >> now, steve, if i didn't know bert, i would say that the democrats are usually the ones who are all over the place and at the moment, they are showing far greater discipline, far greater unity, i mean, that's not how it is supposed to be, is it? >> sure. well, they have been under relentless attack by the republicans since barack obama became president and managed to enact some serious landmark achieves in 2009 and 2010. you know, whatever you think of it, that was most productive congress since the great society days. and now they are motivated to defend it and if you look at the flip side of the republican party, base of that party, people who were in that last week and more broadly speaking republican voters are not wild about mitt romney personally or ideologically. two, basical
